    I read own-fat injections last pretty much forever. They are pricier than fillers, but it still comes out to a whole lot less in the long run. And no chance of rejection or adverse reaction cause it's your own fat. I feel you on the infinite supply, if I could sell a bunch of mine I'd make quite bit of cash.

    I'm getting botox again on Monday. It's $350 a syringe at the place I go BUT they did a great job last time and it's not something you want to cheap out on.

    I can only afford one syringe at the moment so I will probably just do my 11s.

    Update: I discovered that my lovely dentist now does cosmetic injectables, including fillers, but also using proper local anaesthetic because he’s qualified to do so. Went yesterday to “top up” my marionette lines and it was a much more pleasant experience because I didn’t feel a thing except the local which was easy peasy and wore off after a couple of hours. The result is very good - the lines aren’t completely gone, only a full facelift will do that, but I’m happy. AND it was 25% cheaper than the place I went before where they offered no pain relief whatsoever. My dentist was appalled when I told him.

    This. It's such a gamble with anyone who doesn't have loads of experience. In fact, I'd value experience over anesthetic. And I've had my lips done.

    But...but...but he’s done a course and got a certificate and everything. You’re just jellus haters. He’s done a good job and I’m (a) not maimed for life and (b) happy.

    It’s only marionette lines. If I wanted the full Barbie look I’d go to a surgeon.

    That's good, we're only saying you're lucky he's a dentist with a good eye for aesthetics and skilled hand to match.

    Depends on the dentist? Dr Paul, top bloke, is excellent at fixing teeth so no reason to think he can’t do the other stuff equally well. Certainly better than the random face clinic ditz I saw last time. And this isn’t a permanent procedure anyway.

    I guess it all depends how 'into' they are. I had this done by a plastic surgeon once and I was not that happy, then I went to her nurse for a check up and she (luckily) made it a lot better

    in general, you want a practitioner (nurse, plastics, derm, whatevs) to have tons of experience doing the injections (not just a weekend course in the bahamas) AND an eye for aesthetics.

    there is NO way i would go to a dentist for cosmetic injections. unless i wanted to end up on the nightly news. YMMV

    If my dentist started doing injections I would consider it. I trust him with my teeth. Why not?

    How to Future-Proof Your Face According to Celebrity Dermatologists

    When it comes to treating the signs of aging, many women used to take a wait-and-see approach. As in, wait until they see a wrinkle or age spot, then do something about it. Not anymore. According to dermatologist Harold Lancer, MD (whose Beverly Hills office is frequented by Kim Kardashian, as well as Margot Robbie and Brie Larson), his twenty- to thirtysomething patients have learned from their mothers and become the what-if generation. As in, “I may not have forehead lines now, but what if I get them when I’m 40?” Here’s how they’re taking steps to slow aging skin.

    Consider Preventative Botox and Filler


    “I have 25-year-old clients who want to reduce lines before there are lines,” Lancer says. “They’ll squint and say, ‘That’s where I’m going to have a wrinkle, so I want two drops.’ ” And they’re right, he says. “By doing mini treatments more frequently, you prevent facial muscles in those areas from creating deeper lines in the future,” he says. Lancer injects microdoses of muscle-inhibiting neuromodulators, such as Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport, at the site of “could be” lines—the 11 (aka frown) lines between the brows; crow’s-feet; and across the forehead. When it comes to hyaluronic acid–based fillers, the placement and amount are “far more specific and subtle,” Lancer notes.
    For example, to keep eyes looking bright and open, he puts a droplet of Restylane at each brow’s outer tip. “There’s a muscle/fat overgrowth that occurs in the midtwenties that starts to cause a heaviness of the upper brow,” he says. “Microdosing helps you keep that 15-degree upward turn of your eyes.” And because the doses of both injectables are minimal, so is the cost: around $225 to $675 once a year (two times, max).

    Exercise Your Face


    There are 40-plus muscles in your face, and strengthening specific ones can help sculpt high cheekbones and a defined jawline naturally. One option: electrostimulation, which has long been used in the medical arena to treat Bell’s palsy but has now gained traction among the skin-care obsessed. Fitspo cool girls like Hannah Bronfman of HBFIT and Bec Donlan of Sweat with Bec are fans of facialist Shamara Bondaroff’s microcurrent facials ($225 for 50 minutes; @sb_skin). According to Bondaroff, the benefits of muscle-stimulating sessions every four to eight weeks include the “instant gratification of tighter, more lifted skin, but also long-term results—I have clients who stop getting Botox or filler.” Some find the treatment enhances their injectable’s effects. “I look well rested because my eyebrows are sitting higher, I have cheek- bones for days, and it makes my Botox last longer,” Donlan says. Others take matters into their own hands: The palm-size ZIIP nanocurrent home device has reached cult status since its 2015 launch. (The company recently debuted Silver Gel, $50, a serum that contains hyaluronic acid plus mineral-rich seawater, and acts as a conductor between current and skin.)

    One caveat: If you’re doing electrostim in conjunction with injectables, timing is crucial. “You risk altering their distribution,” Lancer says. “So wait a week after Botox before using the technology, and at least two weeks with fillers.” And be committed. “Electrostimulation can enhance your cheekbones and jawline, but you have to use a home device twice daily indefinitely,” he says. “It’s not like doing one push-up a year is going to make a difference.”


    Apply SPF Like It's Your Job


    “Sunscreen is the number one anti-aging cream you can use right now, every day,” says New York dermatologist Robert Anolik, MD. “The only time you don’t have to put it on is at night.” That’s because, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation, 90 percent of skin aging comes from the sun. Sure, your tropical vacations require more diligent protection, but Anolik points out that it’s actually cumulative daily bursts of ultraviolet light (UV) exposure that will fast-track wrinkles, brown spots, and blotchiness. And don’t rely on the SPF in your makeup or moisturizer; it isn’t enough unless it’s at least 30. Then there’s digital light (aka HEV), emitted from your phone and computer, to worry about: HEV damages skin cells, just as UV does. To ward off both, look for a mineral sunblock containing titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which act like physical shields. We like Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense SPF 30 ($36) SHOP NOW and Burt’s Bees Renewal Firming Day Lotion with SPF 30 ($20) SHOP NOW.

    Resurface Regularly


    Anolik, like most dermatologists, swears by retinoids. The vitamin A derivative has decades of science behind it, affirming its ability to diminish pigmentation, boost collagen production, lessen fine lines, improve texture, and reduce the appearance of pores and breakouts by increasing cell turnover. However, the potential downsides to a prescription retinoid—dryness, irritation, and flaking—lead many to ditch their Rx before their skin can benefit. To minimize potential side effects, Anolik has patients start with a pea-size amount of .025 percent tretinoin every other night and apply moisturizer on top. If your skin is supersensitive, downgrade to a gentler over-the-counter retinol, such as Clark’s Botanicals Retinol Rescue Face Serum ($105) SHOP NOW; StriVectin S.T.A.R. Light Retinol Night Oil ($100) SHOP NOW; L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Cicacream ($18) SHOP NOW; or Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM Night Serum ($65) SHOP NOW.

    Balance Your Microbiome


    “The gut and the skin are intimately connected,” says New York dermatologist Whitney Bowe, MD. “Toxins from your gut are released into your bloodstream and trigger inflammation systemwide, including in the skin.” If your gut bacteria are out of whack, your complexion will appear dull—no matter how religiously you stick to a skin-care routine. Or, worse, you’ll experience outbreaks of acne, eczema, or rosacea. According to Bowe, the solution is to starve your gut’s “bad” bugs with a diet rich in probiotics, prebiotics, and healthy fiber, which will rebalance its “good” flora. She also recommends taking a probiotic supplement containing multiple strains of 10 to 15 billion colony-forming units, working your way up to 50 billion. “You see significant changes in your gut microbiome in as little as three days, but it could take a few weeks to translate those differences to your face,” she says. Try Genuine Health Advanced Gut Health Probiotic ($20) SHOP NOW.

    What Really Works


    It’s a no-brainer: Commit to using SPF daily and work a skin resurfacer into your routine, pronto.
